GoDaddy: Small Business Owners Happier, Healthier

Scottsdale, Arizona-based GoDaddy said this morning that it has run a study of its small business customers, and figured out that entrepreneurs are happier, healthier and have a more empowered lifestyle than other workers. The company--which has been aggressively looking to brand itself as a provider of services to the small business market--said it tapped survey firm Zogby Analytics for the study, which found that 83 percent of respondents are happier than they were at their old job and 88 percent were more optimistic about their company's prospects. The company also cited flexibility in their day, better health, ability to combine exercise with their regular workday, and other benefits to working as a small business owner.
